Ask A Manager

My boss is breaking laws and promises but I feel guilty about leaving. The reason he gave me is that he can’t afford to pay the necessary taxes for a W-2 employee. I feel guilty for thinking about quitting because my boss has told me on several occasions that I’m “the one” and I’d be leaving the company in a rut. I’m also afraid that potential employers would see that I quit after 4 months and think I’m a flake.
